Hi! I’m Laura Stapleton, the author of Impatience: A Nova Scotia Murder Mystery. One thing I’ve found in talking about a soon to be out mystery is I have a fear of giving too much away. Let’s see if I can tell you all about it without actually telling you all about it.
Writing the second book in the series, Impatience, was so much fun. I’m a plotter up to a point. I’ll set up the beginning, fix an end, and write the twist and turns in between the two. The couple, Aaron and Mandy, and the secondary characters seem like people who I could call up and chat with.
I have to admit, this is one of the sexiest books I’ve ever written. The mystery solving duo can’t resist each other any longer in this story. Considering what happened in Betrayal, they don’t see the need to put off anything else for when today nothing in life is guaranteed. The title, Impatience, mirrors the characters’ moods, and I had a great time sprinkling the feeling throughout the novel.
Finally, the research! It’s amazing how much I’ve had to learn about everything in Canada and Nova Scotia. The greatest compliment I’ve been getting lately is being asked if I’m from there. I’m not, being a native Oklahoman living in Missouri, US. Because of my upbringing, the medical, financial, governmental, and even mundane all required research. Lucky me, I have Canadian beta readers to catch when I say miles instead of kilometers and dollar bills instead of loonies or toonies.
